Support » Plugin: WPide » can't create file/folder

  • I know this has to be a server issue but hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    I can save existing edited files without any issues but I cannot create new files or folders. I only have this issue on one server. When I try to create a file or folder I get a popup message:

    “Problem creating file /var/www/mysite/wp-content/themes/child/scripts/myscript.js0”

    *not sure where the trailing 0 is coming from but maybe a clue.

    I also verified the startup message says:
    WPIDE STARTUP CHECKS
    ___________________

    WordPress version = 3.6.1

    Web server user/group = www-data:www-data
    wp-content owner/group = www-data:www-data

    wp-content folder exists and contains 6 files

    Using the direct method of the WP filesystem API
    The wp-content folder IS readable and IS writable by this method
    The wp-content/plugins folder IS readable and IS writable by this method
    The wp-content/themes folder IS readable and IS writable by this method

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    It’s more than likely something to do with the parent folder permissions which are stopping you from creating new files.

    I try to activate the plugin and it comes back and asks “Are you sure you want to do that?” I click continue and the plugin doesn’t install or activate. What to do?

    The folder permissions are set to 0755 same as parent…same as all folders on my site in wp-content area not to mention the startup checks say everything IS writable…I have no problems with wp media uploads and other plugins updating.
